Unconditional Love

V-G-075. Well that was my government given name. But I choose a name for my self. This time its Alex, last few times it was Abby, Becca. Yeah. Well I like the name Alex, for now anyway. It's hard to say how long I've been alive but I've been with the academy for about 126. So the year is 2139. Today's date is July 5th. Its Saturday. That means we get the day off. Did I mention there is a huge war going on, oh and I'm immortal and have super powers. I don't think I can handle being a superhero.

4. Opening up (kinda)

Adam's POV

Alex walks me down a long hallway. How do I make her fall in love with me if she's married.  The kiss at training didn't work as I wanted. Does she like spontaneous? Does she like bad boys? What? Ugh. This is so frustrating. My clothes are sticking to me like crazy. I need a shower. The kiss was too soon. Way too soon. That's the problem. How am I off my game? God, i better get good and fast or I'm gonna have my ass handed to me.

"Should we change?" I need clothes not soaked in sweat.

"You can."

"You like being covered in sweat?" I try to flirt and be funny.

"No I'm just going to introduce you to everyone, then I'm going back to my box."

"Why?"

"Because my box is mine. I need more training than the others."

"Why?"

"Because I don't use my abilities anymore." She didn't mean to say that and gets all nervous. Having powers is awesome. My chance to get some info.

"Do you not have them anymore?"

"No. I have them still. I just don't use them." She smiles. Her smile makes me feel good. I have know idea why.

"Why not?"

"I just haven't ever since..." She stops mid sentence. "It's just too dangerous. I hurt people."

"We're immortal. You know that right?" I say it jokingly hoping she will open up more. She laughs. She has a cute laugh. This makes me smile.

"Yeah. Considering that I'm older than dirt in a twenty-two year olds body, I'd say I figured out that we're immortal." She laughs and smiles.

"Well why not then? It's not like you can hurt us." She twists her wedding rings around. Her smile drops as soon as she touches it. Should I take note of that?

"It's dangerous. That's why I have a box. My box." We're no longer laughing.

"So you can't hurt us." She stops dead in her tracks and whips around to face me. Shit, I just stepped over a line.

"But I can kill you!" I see tears forming. She grabs my hands and places it under her chin palm side up. She blinks and lets the tear fall onto my hand. I get a shock of electricity shoot through my hand. I yank my hand back in pain. She wipes her tears.

"See."
"Sorry. I didn't realize."

"It's ok. That's why I have a box." She's smiles and laughing now. Our gaze is locked. I feel like I should kiss her, but I don't want to get slapped. No. Better not. It is only the first day.  It's not like I have a time limit to make her fall in love with me. Once I realize I can't kiss her I feel a little sad. No Adam. Don't ever have feelings for the target.

"Follow me."

"Why?"

"So you can have a shower and new clothes. You smell." She smiles. God I love that smile. I follow quickly.

She is showing me how to work the shower. I don't understand at all. I just raise an eyebrow at her. She laughs and shakes her head.

"Alice. Turn shower on, normal settings please." I hear beeps from the touch screen. the shower turns on. I feel the water. Perfect temp.

"I'll try to find some guy clothes for you."

"What no cocktail dress?" I smirk and flash her my flirty smile.

"I have cocktail dress, but I don't think they're your size." I like a girl that has a sense of humor. I start to undress quickly. She comes back faster than I expected and I'm but naked. I flush all kinds of red I'm sure. She just stares, shocked. I try not to look so embarrassed. Her lips twitch into a huge smile.

"Great, I'm glad you're amused. Can you hand me a towel?" She just shakes her head with an even bigger smile. I grab the towel and clothes from her hands and quickly wrap my self with the towel.

"Nice. Very nice."

"I'm glad you think so." She is enjoying every last bit of this.

"Hurry up."

"Why?"

"I'm going to take a shower too."

"I though you where going to train some more?"

"I changed my mind." I try to crack a joke.

"You can shower with me." She just laughs. Thank god she saw that funny. That joke could've gone either way. I quickly jump in the shower and wash my self. I dry off and dress as fast as I can.

"All yours."

"Did you use my shampoo?"

"Ok. There was nothing else and I'm not great with the whole Alice thing." She just laughs and shuts the door. Her room looks like a prison. No color, no posters, nothing. She showers very fast. She just drops the towel and dress right in front of me. No shame at all. Hot pink bra and hot pink lace underwear. Oh my god. I look away.

"Ready to go meet everyone?" When I look back she is only wear a white tank top. Wow. If she dresses like this everyday, I don't think I could handle it.

"No pants?"

"No." I can't think of anything to say.

"Would it make you feel better if I wore pants?"

"Very much." She just puts on a pair of black short shorts. "So, you just walk around bottomless all the time?" 

"Once you spend a century with these people, you get very comfortable. Soon you'll be walking around in just your underwear too." Her lips twitch into a devious smile.

"You'd like that wouldn't you?" I say jokingly.

"Judging from our little encounter in the bathroom, yeah. I would enjoy that. I would be lying if I said I wouldn't." I look he up and down.

"Good to know." We head to the lounge to meet everyone.
